Verity Gough CAPG

Forest Canine Grooming Ltd is based in Coleford in the heart of the Forest of Dean. I have a specially designed smart pod that provides a safe and friendly grooming environment for the comfort and welfare of your beloved dog. 

I have trained at the UK's North No1 Canine Grooming School at Howgill farm in Lancashire, gaining City & Guilds Level 3 Dog Grooming Diploma, Open College Network (OCN) level 3 Dog Grooming Diploma and Canine First Aid Certified. I am certified with the International Professional Groomers Inc. (IPG) as a Certified Advanced Professional Groomer (CAPG). I am always learning about new care & styling techniques and pride myself on improving my skill set, working towards becoming an International Certified Master Groomer (ICMG).

My passion is dogs, ensuring their welfare is my highest priority with a professional and reliable service dog owners can count on. I believe in grooming without fear or force, therefore I am learning the skills & techniques of Tellington Touch and Animal Centred Education (ACE) Free Work to make the grooming experience a happy one for your dog. I am willing to work with dogs that find the grooming experience difficult, this may involve extra sessions in-between grooms to de-sensitise them and patience from both you and me. Together we can create a plan that best suits you and your dog to ensure their welfare needs are always the highest priority, all dogs deserve to have a happy experience when getting their pamper.
